StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

Mental Black Hole/ Mentalna črna luknja

Metallic components, like hardware, foil, nails, manifest visceral, painful feelings of the depressed people. Liquidity of ink serves as organic, flowing and invisible brain-process from the amygdala and the hippocampus.


Kovinski elementi, kot so aparaturna oprema, folja, žeblji, izražajo visceralne, boleče občutke depresivnih ljudi. Tekoče stanje barvila deluje kot organski, tekoč in neviden možganski proces, ki se odvija v amigdali in možganskem deblu.



Experimental Animation installation artist Wan Chen (Zoey) Lin’s works manifest the nature of coexistence between solid “surface layer” and flowing “underlying layer” in diverse subjects from psychology, biology to social phenomenon. She collages physical objects, textures or sensational memories to observe dynamics and orders for creating animation contents like animation + installation “Mental Black Hole” (2016). Currently, she is utilizing technique, photogrammetry to alloy physical and virtual components for making immersive VR experience and hybrid contents.
